Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina 
Special adviser to the President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has mocked the leader of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Ango Abdullahi, for saying Buhari can no longer protect Nigerians.

Adesina described Abdullahi who claimed to be the leader of the NEF as a "General without troops" who is leading an organisation that has no "credible membership".

Prof. Ango Abdullahi had in a statement on Sunday alleged that the insecurity in some northern states of the country was an indication that President Muhammadu Buhari and the governors of those states have lost control over the protection of the people which is a constitutional duty.

But reacting Adesina said "We are not surprised by this latest statement by Prof. Abdullahi, and our past position on what his group represents remains unchanged: a mere irritant and featherweight."

"The former vice chancellor signed the statement under the banner of Northern Elders Forum (NEF). Hearing that title, you would think the body was a conglomeration of true elders. But the truth is that NEF is just Ango Abdullahi, and Ango Abdullahi is NEF. It is a quasi-organization that boasts of no credible membership, and its leader is akin to a General without troops."

"Before the 2019 presidential election, the one-man army called NEF had shown its antipathy against President Buhari, and its preference for another candidate. They all got beaten together."

"NEF is merely waving a flag that is at half-mast. President Buhari steadily and steadfastly focuses on the task of retooling Nigeria, and discerning Nigerians know the true state of the nation. They don’t need a paper tiger to tell them anything."
